Klavuu White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream Review

Klavuu White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream Review:

Klavuu is such an underrated brand in the sea of Korean beauty brands. It’s the nation’s first beauty company that features pearls in all their products. The benefits of pearl include hydration and brightening, ultimately creating a radiant and glowy complexion.

Around Christmas time last year, I was searching for the perfect makeup base, and stumbled into the huge Klavuu store in Myeongdong. There, I found out about their White Pearlisation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream (what a mouthful!), which is actually the brand’s best-selling product.

So, does it hold its own?

[REVIEW] Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5%

Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% Review

Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% Review:

Ah, I remember I was still a newbie in skincare when I first purchased this product. After ditching those pesky physical scrubs, strengthening my basic routine and used (and also got bored of) konjac sponge, I decided to jump into the world of chemical exfoliations.

Of course, before jumping in, I read a lot of stuff. I wanted to try AHA first to get rid of my acne scars and to brighten my complexion and all the other stuff AHA is supposed to do. After reading and researching a lot about AHA, I decided to try mandelic acid as it is considered suitable for a newbie like me. And after further research, I found this product, AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% and it is easy to get at the nearby drugstore in my area. I kinda don’t want to wait which is why I decided not to buy it online, haha.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2018 Etude House Double Lasting SERUM Foundation SPF25/PA++ N02 Pure

Etude House Double Lasting Serum Foundation SPF25PA N02 Pure Review

Etude House Double Lasting Serum Foundation was purchased by Cosmeperks.

About 2 years ago, Etude House released a foundation called Double Lasting Foundation which became really popular both in Korea and overseas. Etude must have noticed how popular their foundation was and finally change the entire shade range and adding several new shades in the collection for their international customers. I bought it as well and I have to say that it maybe the best foundation Etude House has ever made so I’m pretty excited to see finally they came with a new version!

From Etude House global website, I can see that the Double Lasting Serum Foundation has similar shade range to the original one. Both have 12 shades in 3 different undertones. I really appreciate how Etude House starts to make more shades so most of their customers can try and enjoy their product too.

The hype for the new Double Lasting Serum Foundation is really huge but it’s hard for me to find because there’s no seller has it on stock and Nigama so nice for letting me to join a pre-order for this foundation. I thought it’ll take 7 to 10 days but I only have to wait for 4 days! Kudos for that seller for sending the package really fast.

[REVIEW] Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion Review

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion Review:

Ceramides are something that always interest me, so I tend to be interested in products that mention or contain ceramides. I had never tried anything from Holika Holika either, but when I saw that they had this ceramide emulsion I became curious and had many questions. In the past I totally ignored emulsions because I never found one that worked well for me, that was until I tried the Dermatory Hypoallergenic Emollient. After having such a great experience with that emulsion, I was curious to see if another ceramide emulsion would work as well for me as the Dermatory one had.

Holika Holika had another version of this ceramide emulsion in the past, and then they reformulated it. But the previous version seemed to have great reviews and I noticed that this emulsion had three types of ceramides which made me instantly want to try it. I’ve been using this emulsion since May, and the other day I noticed that I had almost finished it, so it felt like the right time to do a review of it.

[REVIEW] My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask

My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask Review

My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask Review:

MY SCHEMING should be a familiar name for any mask sheet fans, although it’s originated from Taiwan not South Korea. However, don’t underestimate Taiwan sheet masks since they have their own superiorities compared to Korean sheet masks. I personally haven’t tried a lot of Taiwan sheet masks brand, especially because they aren’t very popular in my country so that finding a local seller is very very difficult. Nevertheless, I frequently heard that MY SCHEMING is one of the popular brands beside My Beauty Diary, Dr. Morita, LOVEMORE, etc.

I finally had the opportunity to buy MY SCHEMING sheet masks during my holiday trip to Taiwan two weeks ago. And, my goodness, Taiwanese is just like Korean when it’s related to sheet masks; there are so many brands with various ranges and variants plus different discounts and promotions too! Fortunately I found a store that sells MY SCHEMING masks, allows me to buy three different variants which one of them is MY SCHEMING L-Ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask.

Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence Review

Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence Review:

Huxley is a pretty niche brand that is actually picking up some steam in South Korea as well as in the rest of the world. It features prickly pear seed oil from the Sahara Desert in all of its products to promote a healthy and glowing complexion.

I was recommended the Brightly Ever After Essence for brightening and hydrating effects by a close friend, and decided to give it a go.

So, does it live up to its hype?

[REVIEW] Etude House Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro P03 Light Vanilla

Etude House Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro P03 Light Vanilla Review

Etude House Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro P03 Light Vanilla Review:

This year Etude House finally came out with a brand new concealer called Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro. This concealer is actually an extended line from Etude earlier collection, the Big Cover line. To be honest the concealers on the Big Cover line aren’t impressive for me because the shade selections are so poor so I was excited to see Etude finally make this new concealer in 9 shades!

In those 9 shades, there are 2 corrector shades (Peach for dark circles and Mint for redness) and 7 skin shades range from fair to tan. There’s no dark shade deep enough for people with deep skin tone but I think it’s a good progress that they start making deeper shades. I’m hoping for the next release, Etude will come out with more shades for everyone.

I think this concealer is hyped in Korea because I saw so many Korean beauty Youtubers were reviewing it and most of them said they had a good experience with this concealer. It makes me really want to try it and finally after waiting for almost a month to get the concealer arrive on my place, finally it’s here and I can’t wait to try it!

[REVIEW] COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid

COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid Review

COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid Review:

Having really oily skin and big pores, and also being in a humid climate like Singapore, has caused my skin to be peppered with blackheads and tiny clogged pores. To solve this problem, I have searched high and low for a suitable product that would provide oil control and not dry out my skin at the same time. I came across the COSRX blackhead power liquid, which is a chemical exfoliator.

[REVIEW] Etude House UV Double Cut Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++

Etude House UV Double Cut Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++ Review

Etude House UV Double Cut Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++ Review:

I didn’t notice when Etude House posted their UV Double Cut series on their social media account until I watched Law Of The Jungle where Red Velvet’s Seulgi using this product and, yes, I wanted to try it out too. Perfect timing since I needed to buy a new sunscreen at the moment.

So, Etude House UV Double Cut line consists of 3 products which are Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++, Moisture Tone Up Sun Fluid SPF 48 PA+++ and Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++. All of them are interesting, though. The Fresh Sun Gel is well marked as the best seller and winner of Marie Claire’s Smart Beauty Award. The Moisture Tone Up Sun Fluid has extra function to brighten up skin tone. And the Clear Sun Stick looks very easy and quick to use.

To be honest, I eliminated the Moisture Tone Up Sun Fluid once I read it highly contains Titanium Dioxide (it tends to, or absolutely will, leave whitecast and I want to avoid that). I did the same for Fresh Sun Gel since it has alcohol in its ingredients list. I know, I sound too picky but I really want a friendly product for my sensitive skin without any whitecast effect, so yeah, the Clear Sun Stick seemed to be the best choice.
